VANCOUVER, British Columbia — My new buddies at Queen’s Park Arena in New Westminster, B.C., didn’t really prepare me for this: It doesn’t get much more exciting than watching an Olympic hockey match in Canada.

I’m at the U.S.-Norway game and after one period I can feel the intensity of the crowd. No, the United States and Norway don’t have a tradition of hockey clashes. No matter. Folks in the stands absolutely on fire.

Reminds you of the Shark Tank during the NHL playoffs — before the Sharks tank.
